New XO-1.5 10.2.0 build 114

Just got my CP XO-1.5 :-) and here is some very early notions
Powerd is very intrusive with the 15" sleep setting. Continuous dropped connections, yumming stops in the middle and even Etoys animations stop in the middle. Dropping CPU idle to "6" does not improve things. Increasing SLEEP to something big remedies things.

Yum update updated the kernel to 20100319 but although I set the symlinks in /boot . /prestine/../boot /run/../boot and /running pointing to the new kernel, `uname -r' still says 20100312 ??? Is kernel yum update possible? 
BTW I'm assuming that security is disabled since I can not get a developers key (not in the database). Is that so?

Launching Nautilus from the Sugar terminal has the desktop wallpaper covering the home view even after you quit nautilus, forcing a reboot. Is not a likely scenario but you never know with kids... :-)

Record activity is still not working properly (recorded videos are missing _a lot_ of frames)

Should I be filling tickets for these?

Other than that is _A BIG IMPROVEMENT_ over XO-1. Well done :-)

More  as they come. We need to play with these a bit more.
